Initial Lists for Review
Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen with my feedback?
Your feedback will be used to determine whether this resource should remain in the collection or be cancelled for FY24. Please note that current rising costs require us to significantly consider a large number of resources. If the resource impacts curriculular needs for your program, please let us know.
When will cancellations occur?
The cancellation dates will vary, but campus will continue to have access to most of the journals and databases until late Fall 2023. The date of cancellation for each journal and database is listed in the spreadsheets. Please note that for most journals, UNLV has archival rights, so the University will not lose access to back issues of most journals. In addition, the Libraries’ Interlibrary Loan department facilitates electronic delivery of needed journal articles from outside our collections within 24-48 hours from request.
